Hi Tolkien Class, 

 

I hope you are all having a wonderful time in the snow! Maybe you have been sledging or even built your very own snowman. I want to hear all about it when we are back into school. Please write a short story entitled: 'The Beast from the East'. Don't forget to include the amazing descriptive language we have been using in class and some of our year 4 writing skills such as fronted adverbials and correct use of speech punctuation.

 

Don't forget also to log onto Mathletics for some challenging tasks on fractions!

 

Rug up, stay safe and see you all soon!

Literacy: We have started the year by learning about discussion texts. At first we studied different texts and identified the key features. Then as a class we completed guided write until we were confident to write our own. We discussed many different topics including 'Should children wear school uniforms?' and 'Should zoos be banned?'

Maths: This half term our learning has been based on place value and addition and subtraction. We looked at the value of digits, ordering numbers and rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We are also becoming really good at adding and subtracting four digit numbers. Our understanding is so good, we can now decide which method to use when solving calculations!
